***DID YOU KNOW….***

*The Statue of Liberty was a gift from France to the United States as a token of friendship.  It was designed and created  by Frederic Auguste  Barthodi June 17 1885.

statue making

*The head and torch of Statue of Liberty was  on display at the Paris World’s Fair. 

*Once the Statue was completed is was disassembled into 214 crates and shipped to the United States on June 17 1885.

*There was a problem in the states…the funding for the  base was dismissed by the  US government twice under Pres. Cleveland

*SO,  Joseph Pulitzer of the “WORLD” newspaper decided he would help raise the monies needed for the base of the Statue  of Liberty.  He helped raised $102,000. That being 120,000 contributors , most of which were under $1.00….School children donated pennies and there was no money what so ever donated by our government!

*The Statue of Liberty was finally dedicated Oct 28, 1886.

*The Statue of Liberty has been closed since Hurricane Sandy and will reopen this July 4th.
